Pretty Please Socks

I just finished my Pretty Please Socks - from the January 2008 Sockaholics club (Make 1 Yarn Studio) - in Cherry Tree Hill Merino Sock Yarn.

I loved knitting the socks but I'm not sure how they'll wear because I went up to a US1.5 needle to get the lace to go over my heel but I was getting stockinette gauge on US0...

Just a few modifications - I worked 15 rounds of ribbing instead of 6, picked up more stitches at the start of the gusset, and twisted the stitches in the first row after picking up the stitches on the heel flap.

Beautiful socks. If you're worried about them being too soft for daily wear, make them "house socks" and they'll last forever!
